This much needed book is the result of the efforts of committees from all outstanding special societies in medicine and likewise of several hospitals, to attempt to classify disease in a standard way, so that it would be possible for one interested to look up any subject that he might desire to investigate with little loss of time. It is also to be hoped that this or some similar arrangement will be used in hospitals for the classification of disease. The book is the result of years of labor and careful attention, and has been carefully scanned by various medical men and organizations. It is therefore worthy of careful consideration and, we trust, of extensive use.
